The various members of Hot Chip have, by now, spawned enough splinter material to allow us to move on from constant comparisons to the Mothership.
Joe Goddard is two albums deep with The 2 Bears, and now fellow chips off the old block Al Doyle and Felix Martin have teamed up once again with studio engineer Tom Hopkins for New Build’s second album outing.
‘Pour It On’ drives much further into the territory of electronic dance than their indie-leaning debut, with classic house-tinged characteristics propping up new wave vocals and synths. The lyrics can spill into the realm of over-earnestness at points, but overall this is slick and dancefloor-ready.
Words: Jack Scourfield
